Did this video help you?

Nicole Lendman: Rocket Stoves you can make your self!

kam2057: Huh? Lmfao!

Bob Shupe: @Robikus You will have to wait for Rocket Stove - DIY 2.0

Bob Shupe: @2012Twist I used sheet metal screws to hold the structure together (strength) and the tape to seal it up.

RonRay: Excellent stove design!

cmathew4: my reg stove works pretty good

Atka59: Why don't people make a catalytic rocket stove that heats a pan by conduction. That way the exhaust is really smoke free, the pan won't get all sooty, and the pan won't overheat as the running temp is pretty much constant. To do it you just remove the vermiculite, seal the top with a conductive plate leaving a gap between the top of the inner pipe and the plate, then attach a proper flue alongside the outer barrel venting from the bottom side wall. That way unburnt gases remain until burnt.

Dan Fall: Are there any actual rules for rocket stove design that would help resolve combustion chamber sizes? A rocket for camping would be cool (from black pipe).

dooby doo: you can make it WAYYY smaller.

MrZapatista44: Thanx for vid !! I made one much smaller out of tin cans .. & a #10 can .. very common materials ... it works so well !! about 1/4 the fuel is needed which is what makes Rocket Stoves so amazing ...

Bob Shupe: @ferdinand7004 Thanks!! Im working on perfecting it and hope to produce free plans someday.

Bob Shupe: @cmathew4 Then use that.

winky4u: very nice video***** I`m trying to make a rocket stove by myself. The stove itself is made of 2.5 inch thick Promatect-100. I placed it in a 20L old paint can. I only have to make the skirt yet. (sorry for my english)

malakovich69: Did you say galvanizing burned off? You shouldn't be using galvnized pipe for anything related to cooking or heating. You're gonna poison your family with zinc.

Bob Shupe: @fallguy100000 I think the only real rule is that it work well. Outside of that I think it would have to be what you want it to do. In the case of imau2ber below, he is not accustomed to handling anything larger than three inches so Im sure his stove is very small.... if he has one. If you are planning on doing car camping then size wont matter, you just want it to work. If you're hiking in someplace then you might want something smaller or even built on-site and left there.

Bob Shupe: @johnbleeker - Thanks John. I guess I didnt have a choice in a way as I dont have a yard full of stuff to go and pick through for parts. Maybe some day... if my wife dies. lol

Bob Shupe: @RonRay Thanks Ron!!

xpez: what is the part that qualifies this as a rocket?

Bob Shupe: @ferdinand7004 Thanks! I really appreciate the positive feedback.

Bob Shupe: Thanks Pyroman. That is HVAC tape but the space between the inner pipe and outer pipe is filled with kitty litter so the outside doesnt get that hot.

vincentvangro: @malakovich69 YUP,now u can burn off the galvanized pipe but that is dangerous as well.burnt off or not i'd never use galvanized pipe to cook with..heck when i build my makeshift blacksmithing forge i never use galvanized in that either.it's just a foolish and not worth the health risks..

Bert Heideveld: Good Stove burning wel.

pyroman675: thats cool man good boil time to is thats muffler tape. i had furnace tape but my stove barley got going and it burned off and caught fire but that tape seems to be holding up to the heat

DrMichael MillerPhD: did you use h v a c silver tape to make those fittings stick together?..

Robikus: Dude, calm down a bit will ya?

Bob Shupe: @nuonnuon Thanks!

forest greenwald: nice stove.....there are lots of folks on youtube building what they call rocket stoves, but actually they are not designed like the original rocket stove....a true rocket stove has a double wall insulated burn chamber and partial lower stovepipe insulated....this is to get a hotter flame inside the burn chamber, to more completely burn the escaping gases or smoke....any stove will burn clean to some degree with dry wood, but a true rocket stove has much less pollution than a single wall stove..

Bob Shupe: @malakovich69 Thanks but this is for outdoor use only as with any open fire.

lopsidedcor: The exhaust leaves in one direction which causes acceleration as described by the rocket equation

Bob Shupe: @imau2ber How do you figure? Based on the internal dimensions of the combustion chamber it is about perfect. Additionally, the overall height of the stove does not match the length of the riser. There is about a 4" extension on the top to elevate the pot off the stack/riser allowing the heat to expand and affect the whole bottom of the pot more evenly than the type that have the pot sitting right on the stack. Thanks for taking time to watch the vid and comment.

pabbananna: long term no problems with the metal burning through? and careful when burning the stink off!

a1boywonder: i got a 1 gal can free and about $6 in other parts to build mine
